Why should I care about not killing non-pest insects?

Bug Zappers and Non-Pest Insects

If you have a mosquito zapper that zaps mostly non-pest insects, you may want to rethink using one at all. Remember that many of the insects you are zapping probably prey on the mosquitoes you are trying to kill in the first place.

Consider, too, that many other animals (such as birds and bats) eat insects as food--if you destroy too many of the beneficial insects, you could put pressure on part of your local animal population.
